And Alves, after a rebound, continued the action with a hat, a cut and an opening of game to Firmino, the one who centred raso and allowed to Gabriel Jesus finish to pleasure, achieving the 1-0.

Long possessions, more verticality and two clear opportunities of Lautaro and Of Paul in the coming minutes, a volley of the first to the hands of Alisson and a high shot of the second after a pass of Messi.

Argentina went to the attack and Brazil sentenced to the contragolpe

The party lost balance then in the centre of the field, and after a stray occasion of Coutinho was Messi the one who answered in the 56', with the second stick of Argentina after the first of Agüero: the '10' shot with power of volley and regretted after the balloon went out repelled by the stick. It went in I Gave María, Argentina put all the meat in the asador during the final minutes and did not go out him well.

It attained to shut to the Brazil of Tite and looked for the goal of the tie with ahínco, but this weapon of double edge allowed that to fault of a chamber of hour for the end, in a contragolpe, Roberto Firmino received a frank pass of Gabriel Jesus to sentence the contention. 2-0, Brazil to the final and the selection of Argentina, again without luck in the Glass America.

Leo Messi and the rest of his mates demanded along the party until two possible penaltis, one on Otamendi by push and another on Agüero, with a possible zancadilla of Dani Alves. The referee did not earn them, and not even called him the attention from the VAR. To Leo Messi will touch him follow expecting with Argentina...
